- Title: Wormhole streaming engine: A real 100 Gbit/s monitoring process using affordable Big
- Abstract: Network management is a never-ending challenge that increases in difficulty every year with the network evolution. This transformation affects directly the classical network monitoring process, which consists on very large dedicated and expensive monitoring equipment.
As an alternative, we have been working on a distributed monitoring system which allows monitoring not only different points along the network, but also at current link speeds, such as 100 Gbit/s. However, 100 Gbit/s monitoring represents a huge difference from the classical big data streaming problems, where even with high input rates the data is usually previously distributed and requires a complex computation, and therefore, a huge amount of computers.
It is not affordable nor adequate to build a large cluster to monitor a network. To solve this situation, we have created Wormhole, a streaming engine designed to take advantage of the latest network technologies and to grow mainly vertically but also horizontally. By mixing Wormhole as network monitoring entry point and other solutions like Apache Hadoop, Hive or Spot, we have designed a full system that is able to grow cheaply with the network and provides full analysis, from real-time statistics to machine learning predictions based on previous captures.
Held in odd-numbered years since 1988, IM 2019 will follow the 30 years tradition of NOMS and IM as the primary IEEE Communications Society’s forum for technical exchange on the management of information and communication technology focusing on research, development, integration, standards, service provisioning, and user communities. IM 2019 will offer various types of sessions: technical, experience, demo, poster, and panel. The conference brings together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry which provides a multidisciplinary trend-setting forum to explore the hottest areas of information and communications technology management related to industry, academia, government, enterprise and other market segments from around the world. IM 2018 will also present up-to-date approaches and technical solutions for novel management paradigms to deal with the new management issues in future infrastructures. In IM 2019, you will be able to network with friends, colleagues, customers, and vendors from around the world.
IM 2019 will focus on the theme “Intelligent Management for the Next Wave of Cyber and Social Networks”, reflecting the increasing convergence of both technical network infrastructure and infrastructure for social interactions as well as the emergence of new waves of communications technology involving areas as varied as cyber-physical systems, ultra-low latency services, and converged management and control planes. In addition to this theme, IM 2019 will cover a wide range of topics of interest within the field in integrated network and service management.
We look to grow the participation of companies and exhibitors in the growing areas of Cyber, Social Networks, and Intelligent management, as well as increase the participation of the expanding user and enterprise communities within the greater Washington, DC area, the Americas, and the world.
